Image quality test results from the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III have been added to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens Review.
 
We've tested about five copies of this lens and somehow didn't get any of them tested on the 1Ds Mark III. These results are especially useful for backward compatibility when making comparisons with older lenses in the image comparison tool.
 
This is an amazing lens – I personally bought one.

As promised, image quality results from the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III have been added to the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art Lens page.
 
We recently shared the test results for this lens mounted to a Canon EOS 5Ds R, but some older 24-70mm lenses have not been tested on this camera. Thus, the 1Ds Mark III results fill in some blanks:
 
Sigma vs. Canon version I
Sigma vs. Sigma non-OS
Sigma vs. Tamron VC
 
The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art Lens is in stock at Amazon and WEX and available for preorder at B&H and Adorama.

Sony a7R II-captured Image quality, vignetting, flare and distortion test results along with specs and measurements have been added to the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens page.
 
With the new Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens being announced, it seemed an appropriate time to take a look at the Sony alternative.

We have added a very-interesting MTF chart comparison to the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens page (scroll down to the image quality section).
 
These charts give us some indication as to how the new 85 f/1.4L IS lens' image quality stacks up to several other lenses, including the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens, Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens, Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Lens and more.
 
Update: Please note that I have corrected a mistake in the Sigma chart interpretation.
 
The demand for this Canon lens is very high - preorder early to be assured of the earliest acquisition (perhaps it could be an early Christmas present to yourself)!

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R (second lens copy) and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review.
 
This lens tested slightly better at the wide end than the last copy we tested on the 5Ds R, so I moved the new results to the "Sample 1" position (the default). If you need a telephoto zoom lens that is more compact than the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens, this one is a good choice.

An additional set of Image quality test results, from both the Canon EOS 5Ds R and the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, have been added to the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens Review.
 
I was not completely satisfied with the image quality results we obtained from our previous copy of this lens and have been wanting to try another. That re-test has been completed and ... the new lens indeed performs better, though only slightly so. The results from the latest evaluation lens now show as defaults for this lens model (Sample 1).

Image quality results from a second lens copy have been added to the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens Review.
 
This latest copy of the 24-105 L II performs slightly better than the first, so I made it the default (sample 1).

Noise test results have been added to the Canon EOS 6D Mark II page.
 
With over 200 sample crops available, there are many comparisons to be made. I have added a significant amount of commentary to the "Sensor and Image Quality" section of the 6D II page.
